"Outside of Ozzfest, there's no tour like this and that's what makes it so exciting for Calgary," Dave Johnson, spokesman for The Union, the promoter behind the show, told the Sun Media.

"There hasn't been a show at McMahon like this in a while. We're excited to welcome Calgarians back to this venue for a show of this size.

"Really, the only concerts that rival this kind of lineup are the festivals that are held in Europe," says Johnson.

"It's going to be a beautiful summer day and we're going to put on a mega old-fashioned rock show."

Tickets go on sale Friday April 18 at 12 noon at all Ticketmaster outlets, charge-by-phone, and online at Ticketmaster.ca and UnionEvents.com for $119.50 - 49.50. VIP packages, which will include express admission, laminate, floor access and a private hospitality area, will also be available for a limited time (must be 18 and older to purchase).
